Lady Gaga is an American pop star famous for her little monsters, eccentric style, and controversial songs. Still, she revealed a few secrets about herself that you probably didn’t know.
Check out the following article to discover ten of Lady Gaga’s Secret
1. Gaga’s not a true blonde!
In spite of being one of the most recognizable faces in the world, Lady Gaga doesn’t reveal much about her private life. Nevertheless, a lot has been said and written about the singer ever since she started her international career back in 2008 with ‘Just Dance’. One thing people didn’t expect from the young performer was that she wasn’t actually completely natural as they might have thought…
Gaga confessed once that she dyes her hair and wears wigs because she has a rare skin condition called ‘scleroderma’ which affects the way her body metabolizes pigment.
2. She used to be a fashion designer!
Before achieving success as a singer, Gaga worked as a songwriter for other famous artists such as Fergie from The Black Eyed Peas and The Pussycat Dolls. What many of you might not know is that she also worked as a fashion designer before becoming what she is now… In fact, Gaga created different pieces of clothing worn by big celebrities including Mischa Barton, The Black Eyed Peas, and even Tyra Banks who wore one of Lady Gaga’s creations on the runway back in 2006.
3. Gaga’s been fighting for same-sex marriage since 2008!
In spite of being a young and famous singer, Lady Gaga has always been very involved in social issues and politics… In fact, she publicly supported Barack Obama when he ran for president in 2008 and also became an active member of the ‘Human Rights Campaign, which fights for equal rights regardless of sexual orientation. So it’s not surprising that she has directed her attention to the debate about same-sex marriage in the United States ever since California approved such unions in May 2008. The pop star made her point public when she gave away two rings made with the rainbow flag at a gay wedding ceremony held in Santa Barbara on September 9th 2009. Right after this event, she also wrote a powerful open letter to the California senators in which she said that “The spirit of this law [approving same-sex marriage in California] is that of love and compassion,” .
4. Gaga’s parents didn’t accept their daughter’s peculiar style!
Lady Gaga has always been fond of wearing extravagant pieces of clothing and in some cases completely out-of-the-ordinary outfits… Now it might be hard to believe but when Lady Gaga was younger, her own parents were actually against her eccentric image. In an interview with Vogue magazine, Gaga’s mother admitted that “I would try to make [Gaga] look presentable”, so one could say they weren’t fond of her unique fashion sense.
5. Gaga’s mother and sister were both models!
It might be hard to believe but Gaga’s Mother, Cynthia Germanotta, has been a model since she was about twenty years old. Even more astonishing is the fact that her sister Natali is also a model as well as one of Lady Gaga’s best friends. In addition to modeling, Lady Gaga’s family is also involved in music as some members studied it at university.
6. Lady Gaga has a special connection with France!
Even though she had already become famous worldwide by 2009 , Lady Gaga still wanted to promote her first studio album on French television… And so she decided to do a performance on ‘Le Grand Journal’ show which broadcasts every weekday from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Canal+. Gaga’s performance of ‘ Just Dance’ went a little bit like this…
7. Lady Gaga had an online romance with Luc Carl!
Luc Carl is an award-winning bartender who has been living in New York since he was 16 years old and as such, he quickly became one of the city’s most famous bartenders. He also happens to be very good friends with American pop star Katy Perry but it seems that back in 2008, he was more interested in starting a romantic relationship with Lady Gaga than Katy Perry herself… So what did happen? After all these years, we still don’t know if they actually had a chance to meet and start something together or if the whole thing was just another bad rumor. What we do know is that in a fan post from the time, Luc Carl claimed he had been writing to Lady Gaga on MySpace when Katy Perry started messaging him as well… So what did happen to these two? After all these years it’s still a mystery.
8. In 2010, Lady Gaga became 3D!
In order to promote her own fragrance called ‘Fame’, Lady Gaga released a commercial that featured her performing together with an android version of herself. This ad was directed by fashion photographer Steven Klein and featured a man who fell for both versions of the singer which caused him to have a nervous breakdown at the end. The video also featured many different symbols including pink panthers, lions, and butterflies, but its main inspiration was Andy Warhol’s pop-art vision.
9. Lady Gaga wrote the song ‘Teeth’ for Madonna!
When she first started collaborating with different artists, Lady Gaga decided to write a song called ‘Teeth’ for none other than Madonna. Unfortunately, Madge never got to record it as her label didn’t like it and so they never actually met up to work on it together… Still, Lady Gaga has said that “I told Madonna about this song that I had written called ‘ Teeth ‘. She loved it but her camp didn’t” , so who knows if one day the queen of pop might decide to use this catchy piece in one of her own albums.
10. Gaga wasn’t happy when MTV censored her!
One thing that might surprise you about Lady Gaga is the fact that she actually likes to wear clothes… And as such, she was very upset when MTV censored her by blurring her nipples in the video for ‘Telephone’. Although this was probably done with good intentions, Gaga claimed “I think it’s totally hypocritical and I’m really offended by it… Nudity has been a part of art since the beginning of time. There’s not one culture or era where nudity wasn’t present”. We all know how much Gaga loves expressing herself through music, so imagine what would have happened if MTV had already censored Gaga back in 2008.
